Job description
Job responsibilities

There are 28 inpatient respiratory beds on the Respiratory Ward, Locke, on the second floor in the main building at the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) site. The successful candidate will share responsibility for the respiratory patients at PAH

Ward cover:

The Trust is committed to daily consultant input onto the in-patient wards. More input than the traditional two consultant ward rounds are required. The Respiratory division model is for two consultant Respiratory Physicians to each have half the ward and for both consultants to see all new patients, sick patients & any who might be able to be safely discharged sooner with consultant input daily.

The expectation is for the consultants to do two full ward rounds weekly with shorter selective rounds on other days but a minimum of paper rounds to support the junior team and allow time to meet with relatives. They will support the Registrars and discuss any referral as required. If the Registrars are away they would be expected to cover the ward referrals. The ward cover is by monthly rota and when off the ward a separate weekly rota for MAU referral cover is available
